Green in their palette very often. Not that Kansas at this point is much greener. It is windier. Although it's not that Kansas is windy, it's that Missouri sucks (rim shot please).
There is a point at which the farmers have to start irrigation just to make grass grow - this point is somewhere behind you, when you're traveling west and see the Colorful Colorado sign. John Wesley Powel tells us it's the 100th Meridian. Did you notice that point, that line, it is a fence of sorts. A fence that the weather patterns know about. A barrier to dry air. Or is it a barrier that when clouds get beyond they feel free to open up a bit - let some moisture out?
Sometimes it is an obvious point, rarely so obvious as below. But the point is that it's not about where the grass is greener - but what you are searching for and what one is nurturing. A good friend of mind (who lives in Colorful Colorado) said to me - and it stuck - "The grass is always greener, ... where you water it."
